    Optibay / HDcaddy for macbook pro

    August 13th, 2011

    This week I ordered an Optibay unit for my MacBook Pro 13′ (2011 model). Since I have a 128Gb SSD, I thought I could use some more storage for my pictures, movies and virtual machines. And because I don’t use CD’s at all, the choice is easy. Read the rest of this entry “

    Review: Blackhawk! Tanto Light Hiker boots

    May 11th, 2011

    While the regular M90 army boots are great, they can be a bit hot in the summer. So I went looking for a lighter pair of shoes at Blackhawk! and 5.11. Skidder already bought the Black Ops boots, so I tried them on first. Well, great fit and all, but still a bit warm, and especially high for in the summer. 5.11 didn’t have any spectacular boots in their online shop, so I started looking for Blackhawks choice in shoes. Now I saw the Tanto Light Hiker (TLH) before, but didn’t really inspect it because it was mid-winter. Now I have them and lets start the review! Read the rest of this entry “

    Mac Touchpad drag release delay

    May 7th, 2011

    So I recently bought a new MacBook Pro, and it’s a great machine. There are only a few minor ‘features’ that really bother me, one of them is the release delay that occurs when you use the ‘tap-to-click’ option and try to drag things around. This is especially bothersome when moving windows around or selecting text. What happens is this: once you dragged around and release the touchpad, it takes a second (maybe more) to actually release the object. If you use the trackpad before that, you just keep dragging (or selecting). Now for some people this may be nice, but my mind really doesn’t need a second to realize I stopped dragging.

    Tactical .75 pants

    April 30th, 2011

    So here’s the deal: I’m looking for some pants that keep you a bit cooler in the summer than the original tactical pants, or even the lightweight tacticals. Blackhawk! and 5.11 both provide a series of shorts, but those are not really my thing. I’m more of a three-quarter length pants, that go just over the knee. If at all possible I’d like them so that the kneepads still fit. Read the rest of this entry “

    Wegwerpauto’s

    March 24th, 2011

    Zelf werk ik al een tijdje in een autogarage, waar ik ooit begonnen ben met opruimen en de vloer vegen, en ondertussen allerhande reparaties verricht. In die zes en en half jaar heb ik toch wel van alles opgepikt, maar wat me elke keer nog weer blijft verbazen zijn de woorden “Die motoren zijn niet kapot te krijgen”. Niet omdat de zin op zichzelf zo vreemd is, maar omdat het daarbij altijd over een oud type auto gaat! Nieuwe auto’s worden niet meer gemaakt met het label ‘niet kapot te krijgen’. Sterker nog: als je een nieuwe auto koopt ben je veel meer kwijt aan onderhoud dan wanneer je een oud barrel gaat opknappen. Read the rest of this entry “
